I own one, its my outside defense. A little hard to clean the upper receiver, but I get it done. It has an 18" barrel, 6 rounds with one chambered. Half cock the outside hammer and I feel safe. It handles modern 2 3/4 )) buck, 12 pellets with no problem. There was a model for the military. Called a trench gun. Had a bayonet lug on it. I think its a fine shotgun. It replaced an Itcha Mod 37, DS police special, parkerized, rifled sights, 8 rounds. The only shotgun that you can hold the trigger, and fire rounds by operating the pump handle. Itcha no longer makes those models. But my brother need a gift. So to him it went. My Winchester does just fine. And I really like the outside hammer. A fine weapon, and a great conversation piece.
